Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route

Backcountry Discovery Routes are multi-day off-pavement routes for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle enthusiasts who want to explore and experience rugged backcountry places.

The Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route (#WYBDR) is the newest addition to the collection of off-road adventure routes and the 11th in the series. The WYBDR is the most remote discovery route in the least populated state. Wyoming's vast public lands made it an ideal spot for the new route. The 950-mile BDR passes through five mountain ranges with elevations approaching 11,000 feet! The WYBDR can be ridden in either direction from South to North or from North to South.

A weekend escape to Saratoga, Wyoming

When it comes to vacation, I love a place that combines the outdoors with relaxation.

I had driven the scenic byway between Laramie and Rawlins, Wyoming before and knew that spending a few nights somewhere in between was a must. Surrounded by the Medicine Bow National Forest, I knew that Saratoga would be the perfect destination. Eliza and I headed out early, left the traffic and city behind for the mountains with our swimsuits and fly rods in tow.

Hidden Corners of Carbon County

Here, the alpine region of Medicine Bow National Forest and the Snowy Range segue gracefully into the high plains.

This is where you’ll find four unique areas filled with history and outdoor adventure—what the west is all about. Spend a weekend unearthing timeless stories, immersing yourself in a truly western landscape, and road tripping along scenic byways in Carbon County, Wyoming.
